Renewal at New Venture – an update.
New Venture Theatre is a Brighton based community theatre run by volunteers which owns its own building and is a registered charity.
As our 2021/22 Season comes to a close this is a good time to take stock of our ‘Renewal at New Venture’ appeal which has now been running for two years.
You may remember that we launched this initiative to raise money for some important restoration and enhancements of our beautiful Grade 2 listed building. Since then your generous donations, together with fundraising events, contributions from sponsors supplemented by healthy ticket and bar sales have enabled us to carry out urgent repair and repointing work on the south wall of the building, the rebuilding of a crumpling window lintel and this summer we are having an extensive renovation of our three large ground floor south facing wooden windows. However, the stepping down of our Fundraising Co-ordinator a little while ago together with an increasingly challenging economic environment has led the Committee to bring the ‘Renewal at New Venture’ appeal to a close at the end of its second year.
We will continue to proceed equally vigorously with the essential repairs and improvements at the theatre, but on a less prescriptive basis. Your contributions to help finance this work will continue to be sought and will be hugely appreciated! And we will, of course, continue to keep you fully informed of the work we are planning in our Newsletter and on the NVT Website.
Thank you again for the generous support you have given to enable the work we have undertaken so far, and with your help we look forward to further improvements at our beloved theatre.
